Anime Girls in Tights – Yom Exhibition at Akihabara
Being a big fan of his, I was rather excited to be able to experience his works in front of my very own eyes.
At the entrance, I was greeted by a few posters with his illustrations on giving you information about what merchandise is available for purchase and the cost.
The wall scrolls you could purchase were shown on display.
In the middle was a table with various merchandise, the most popular being his doujin art books such as Yom Tights Ruri, Yom Tights Beniaka, Yom Tights Hisui, Sake Tights and his most recent collaboration title Kuro Tights which features illustrations from 42 different artists across Japan such as Yom, 40hara, Nohito, Taira Tsukune and many more.
The merchandise on the table ranged from mousepads, wall scrolls, doujin art books, fabric posters, and acrylic figures.
They also had the life-sized butt mousepad of his works on display, which is currently open for pre-orders for the western fans.
There was also a gashapon machine present, where you could pay 500 yen ($4.47 USD) for a chance to get your favorite illustration by Yom on a button or a glass cleaning cloth.
Of course, I wanted a glass cleaning cloth since I’m tired of using tissues so I ended up testing my luck!
I caved in and did gacha for a cleaning cloth and bought a new key-chain! pic.twitter.com/bJcWppresc

Throughout the exhibition, his works were framed for display and I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
His newest collaboration title Kuro Tights had a section of its own.
The merchandise available for purchase varied from wall scrolls to illustrations on a canvas.
The exhibition has already ended but be sure to follow Yom on Twitter to keep up-to-date with his latest works!
